and following the rule of law and as more evidence becomes available, they are prepared to act on him again. i think as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happening over the last few days to understand the evolving threat from al qaeda and to deal appropriately with that. >> dana loesch there were phone calls today that they would have been fired. do you agree with that? >> there were a lot of missteps here. we do know that you had said that there was a whisper of questioning susan rice and secretary of state clinton. i don't think asking questions on why talking points were changed, we know for sure the u.s. intelligence report came out and said extremists that led the attack had al qaeda ties. why was that removed? who removed it? who was in charge of manipulating these talking points. these are questions i wish would have been asked today. >> okay. that's fine. if you're going to take the argument that anyone guilty of misreading intelligence and so on should actually be fired, wher
a new law. >>> a limit on the size of magazine clips. the president wants legislation to limit clips to ten bullets. something that would have reduced, perhaps, the number killed in the aurora, colorado movie theater massacre. >>> and then there is the president's most important push. and that's for universal background checks. this is probably the thing that has the best chance of getting through congress. has the support of some gun rights advocates. and might, just might, get bipartisan support. universal background checks could have prevented the columbine high school gunman from buying an assault weapon from a private seller who had bought it at a gun show. the president also proposed clearing the way for schools who want armed guards to get them. but he made just a passing reference to violent video games calling for research on their effects. and there was not a single mention of hollywood, violence, television or movies. president obama knows the only way anything meaningful will get done, though, on guns is if gun control advocates are able to tap into public emotion. frustr
in the second amendment. >> i'm afraid president obama may have a king complex. >> he's already abused the law enough times that it's just been staggering. the american revolution was all about fighting such a monarchy. >> we want all tools available to use, including that impeachment. >> with that kind of congressional opposition to the president, it was no sweat for nra president david keene to dismiss the president's initiatives as nothing but a grab bag of liberal feel-goodies. >> this is all sort of makes you feel good, but, in fact, it doesn't do much. >> he's confident saying that because the nra has spared no expense in quarterbacking all research on firearms and their impact on society. that is when they're not using their resources to target the president's daughters. in a new ad calling the president an elitist hypocrite for sending his daughter to a school with armed guards. an ad "the washington post" fact checker awarded a whopping four pinocchios. far from being elitist the relatively small force of unarmed security guards at sidwell is not unusual for a school of its size. more
differently. the problem with the gun control debate from the perspective of folks who want gun control laws is they need to say, we don't want to target lawful gun owners. 47% of adults in this country say they have a gun in the home. you want to say, we want to separate out the people who are gun trafficking and doing other things that promote the climate of gun violence from that cause of lawful gun owners. i think the nra, they win by losing. the more you have a debate around these issues the more it seems we're going to get more gun laws, the nra builds intensity that way. >> erin, that's the mistake that i've been saying from day one. this should not be a gun control conversation. it should be a gun violence conversation. and if you are talking gun control, you're playing on the nra's field. if you say gun violence and you broaden it, that's a different debate. that's been the problem from day one. >> all right, thanks to all of you. you always want to have the home field advantage. if they have it, they have it. >>> doctors racing to save the vision of a man who was attacked with acid

. massacres have taken place in businesses, law practices, malls, movie theaters, and especially schools. these massacres don't seem to stop. they continue on. columbine, virginia tech, aurora, tucson, oak creek. a common thread in these shootings is each gunman used a semiautomatic assault weapon or large capacity ammunition magazine. military-style assault weapons have but one purpose, and in my view, that's a military purpose, to hold at the hip if possible, to spray fire, to be able to kill large numbers. since the last assault weapons ban expired in 2004, and incidentally, in the ten years it was in place, no one took it to court, more than 350 people have been killed with assault weapons. more than 450 have been injured. we should be outraged by how easy it is for perpetrators of these horrific crimes to obtain powerful military-style weapons. >> again, we have been listening to senator dianne feinstein as she goes ahead to introduce the new assault weapons bill of 2013. she was the face of the bill in the 1990s. and that expired in 2004. >> joining me is congresswoman jackie speie

. you punish law-abiding citizens and don't get to the heart of the matter. >> hong onang on a second. what evidence is there of that? it seems like a common-sense measure. alex jones on with piers. to find out that guy has 50 guns, makes you stop and thing for a moment. >> we saw a news outlet, blog, post the names of everybody who has a neighblicense to carry a . you know, that's a form of intimidation. and i think it's very important that people understand that these -- the laws that the administration is talking about doing won't stop bad people from getting guns and doing bad things. so you end up punishing law-abiding citizens. >> how is that a punishment? this is what i -- i grew up with guns in my house. so i'm not particularly afraid of guns, but i have kids. so i wouldn't keep guns around my kids. i think i have a relatively rational middle of the road take on it. i don't understanding who is buying ammunition, who is buying an ar-15 if that's a punishment? if you are a law-abiding citizen, why is that a bad thing? >> it's a punishment that the government uses it as a form o
of the executive orders yesterday federal law to prohibit doctors from asking patients about guns. who is the doctor for asking you whether you know have a gun? tell the doctor to take a hike of the ask you that but the executive order yesterday that said there is nothing to prohibit will be followed one day if the sentence stopped by an executive order that does your doctor shall ask you about your gun. the whole purpose of the second amendment is to enable people to protect themselves when the police can't or won't and to establish a residue of firepower in the hands of the public to fourth tyranny weather by giving it tiring second thoughts or whether by shooting at the tyrant which is how we can a country when we shot at king george. charles: you mention the second amendment. i want to play a clip from senator marco rubio and get your reaction. >> i think the president doesn't have the guts to admit it, does not believe in the second amendment although he said he is. these guys, the second amendment is in the constitution. i didn't write the constitution and needed to you. if he do
to restrict the second amendment rights of law abiding americans. congressman scalise, any attempt by president obama to take away gun rights will meet strong opposition in congress. it was senator rand paul who went the farthest. >> our founding fathers were very concerned about having a separation of powers, they didn't want to let the president become a king. i'm afraid that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing and we're going to make sure that it doesn't happen. >> i want to bring in the political report for the washington post and editor of citizen jane politics and contribute for to the daily beast. let's start with the campaign push for this because we did see it work to help raise taxes on the rich. what does the president need to do this time around, do you think, patricia? >> i think he really needs to change the dynamic of what senators and congressmen are hearing from their constituents, and we see him doing that. the president knows when we look at national polls, the majority of americans are in favor of stricter gun control, but in states tha
with implementing background checks, tracking firearms, making sure existing gun laws are fully enforced. executive actions mean he does not have to get congressional approval. on the legislative side, he called for criminal background checks on all gun sales. also limiting magazines to ten rounds, and reinstating the 1990s ban on military-style assault weapons. now he acknowledged that some of the legislation faces strong opposition in congress. >> this will be difficult. there will be pundits and politicians and special interest lobbyists publicly warning of a tyrannical all-out assault on liberty. not because that's true but because they want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue for themselves. and behind the scenes they'll do everything they can to block any common sense reform and make sure nothing changes whatsoever. >> congressional republicans so far have been cool to the proposals, though some are open to limiting high capacity magazines and tightening background checks. house speaker boehner saying only that he'll review the president's recommendations. a few republicans, though, a

rather than change in gun laws. i go to church as much as possible but i mean, when you talk about, for example, he says the law's the only redoubt of secularism will not suffice. let us all return to our places of worship and pray for help. again, not to dispa raj religion and i believe you guide your life the way you do but this is a lawmaker talking about let's turn to prayer. how do you have a reasonable conversation when someone sees that as the be all, end all solution there? not a rejection of religion but talking about laws here. >> yeah. we are. one of the things you see from this president and this commission that biden had is they're reaching out to faith leaders to have them to be a part of the conversation. >> not telling them to pray. they're saying talk to your people, go to the church and get the laus. you know? >> that's right. but i do think perry's statements, you're from texas. i'm from south carolina. i think it is a reach for some of these folks in these states, red state democrats to figure out how to talk about this legislation. you saw from the president. h
one of the most brazen attempts ever by an american president to unilaterally implement new laws without the consent of the legislative branch. >> i actually think the president, he just doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> there are certain things in his executive orders that are un-american. in some ways they're even fascistic. >> he's a tyrant. he hates the second amendment. and he's un-american. righties are up in arms over the executive action signed by the president of the united states. the president's biggest orders include the nomination of an alcohol, tobacco, and firearms director. he asks for a study on gun violence prevention as well as reports on safety technologies on stolen firearms. apparently, conservatives believe this is tyranny. today vice president joe biden detailed one of the major initiatives of the president's gun proposals. >> how do we make our streets and schools safer? with regard to our streets i believe and the president believes that cops make a difference. we're going to push again for another $4 billio
. >> the president's proposed gun safety laws are in no way a gun grab or an infringement on the right to bare arms. regardless, the conservative right wing is insisting the president wants to get rid of the second amendment. >> let me be absolutely clear. like most americans, i believe the second amendment guarantees an individual right to bare arms. >> i actually think the president doesn't have the guts to admit it is not a believer in the second amendment, although he states that there is. >> there is a second amendment. the president and i support the second amendment. >> he is feeling right now high on his own power. i think it's really sad to see the president of the united states exploiting the murder of children and using it to push his own extreme anti-gun agenda. >> aside from the make-believer attack on the second amendment polls show america is ready for new gun legislation. a new nbc news wall street journal poll shows a majority of americans, 56%, want stricting regulation on gun sales. that's the highest number reported since 2006. while the fate of the president's proposed legislat
to ban guns from law-abiding citizens for decades. they add the american people know gun bans do not work and we are confident congress will reject senator dianne feinstein's wrong-headed approach. right here we'll debate. let's go to our cnbc contributor and author of "divider in chief" and kay bailey hudson. i was reading former new york police chief bill braddon who thinks the gun ban is crazy. there's 350 million firearms out there, including assault weapons. you think this feinstein approach has a chance? >> well, i think that harry reid gave you the signal that it's going to be very difficult because he said i'm not bringing up anything in the senate that isn't going pass in the house. because he has vulnerable democrats who are up for election in 2014 that are in states that value their guns, and i think that it's going to be very difficult. and i also think republicans are looking at other issues like violence in the movies, violence on these video games and that it's a culture thing that has to be talked about and a part of the debate as well as just always focusing on the limita
for new gun regulations. the president is asking for several new laws including background checks for all gun sales, and in a cbs news/"new york times" poll 92% of americans say they want gun buyers to be checked out. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. nancy, what's been the reaction from members of congress? >> reporter: well, norah, democrats think they have an opening right now because public opinion has shifted in the wake of the newtown tragedy and there are some areas where the two sides say they agree but restricting guns is not one of them. within hours of the president's announcement -- >> i'm calling on congress to pass some very specific proposals right away. >> reporter: republican senators were releasing statement after statement expressing their opposition florida's marco rubio told fox news restricting assault weapons would not prevent mass murder. >> i think the president doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment although he states he is. >> reporter: mr. obama's proposals include reinstating the assault wea

of our laws date back to the 1950's. some to the 1960's. there has to be a way of bringing it up to date. those are things that will have to be negotiated. all be just say it can't managed by a central system in washington where washington decides how many nurses we need, how many farm workers. business will have to play a role and business will have to be the determining factor in order to make this work in a practical way. >> think for a man and that 10,000 people a day retire in the united states, seven days a week. we are a nation with unemployment and with a shortage of people that go to work at specific jobs. the secretary's point is on target. if you try to do this with an overseer of exactly how many left-handed nurses and right- handed carpenters get into the added states, we are doing the wrong thing. we need to do it on demand. if we have an extraordinary need to be competitive, and many, because of the price of energy and the fact the country is probably will have and have access to more energy than anyone else, you will see manufacturing jobs coming back to the united states
this the day after rick perry said the solution -- rick perry says we don't need laws. we need to go to church and pray. so the party that prays the gay away now prays the ak away. >> stephanie: that's right. they say guns are absolutely essential in god's world. >> that's right. we have a well regulated militia, the national guard. the real bad guy here is james madison for weird writing. >> stephanie: that's enough of the organ. he said, this california lawmaker said guns are used an average of 3 million times a year. that's like 6,900 times a day. other people say it is only 200 times aday. whatever the number is they are used to defend human life. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: what? >> it's all to save lives. >> stephanie: defend our properties, our freedoms our faith -- >> our faith? no one is coming foryour guns. >> if you need a gun to perfect your faith, you don't have much faith.

[cheers and applause] we call that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. they understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as he pleased. instead they knew that our power grows through its root in use, our security emanates from the justness of our cause the force of our example how much tempered qualities of humility and restraint. we are the keepers of this legacy. guided by these principles once more, we can me
is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. we will respond to the threat of climate change. knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. the commitments we make to each other through medicare and medicaid and social security, these things do not sap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> the "wall street journal" saying that president obama vows aggressive agendas and the speech signaling a president set to fight over this new to-do list. the "new york times" offering this, saying obama offers liberal vision. we must act. >> i think he has finally decided, obviously, he's a free man electorally. he's not running again. so the handcuffs are off. i think he looked at the rear view mirror at the past four years and said you know, listen. >> critics are panning the president's inaugural address in partisan rhetoric, lacking very little bipartisan outreach. politico reporting that some members of the gop are c
, connecticut has profoundly moved the dial on public support for stricter gun laws. the new poll finds that 54% of americans think gun control laws should be tightened in comparison to just 39% lass than a year ago. perhaps most heartening is the proposal by gun owners. a whopping 93% of people from gun-owning households support background checks on all gun purchases. and 53% of them support a ban on high-capacity magazines. but will public opinion translate into meaningful policy changes? as we have seen in the weeks since nowtown, not without a fiekt from the nra and the gun lobby. our next guest lee fong, contributing writer for "the nation," and he is here with the latest on what gun manufacturers are doing. welcome back inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> when i see these numbers on guns, it's astonishing how much this tragedy has changed these numbers. >> this tragedy was unique, one because it was so horrific, but two, we saw a lot of political leadership that we haven't seen in previous massacres. with the shooting in wisconsin we didn't see
think he did. >> he's harvard two degrees -- >> so how could he so misstate the law on guns when in fact scalia and the supreme court in 2008 specifically said a woman in anacostia in a crack house next door could have a handgun? and also saying the president exploited this, could somebody tell him he's actually senator of a very large demographically changing state and not the spokesman for the tea party for, like, you know, the greater tea party, the greater houston chapter of the tea party? i was shocked. >> i was shocked too. frankly, because he seemed to be saying in the senatorial way, cruz, my friend and they barely know each other. cruz went after him over and over and over again. it was a very unusual performance by a freshman senator who doesn't seem to want to get along, wants to start a fire here. >> the problem is mika if this had happened in 2010 i'd say i understand the politics of it. the republican party i'm sorry, we have our backs against the wall. the president of the united states has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval
to be successful. >> we're going to make changes to gun laws. i think we'll do some on a national basis and we're clearly already starting it on a state by state basis. so i'm there is going to be a level of success. it's locked in and i think you have to put that into -- i know it's hard for what people in washington to think that something might actually be gotten done but it's going do happen. this newtown changed discussion and whatever is not gotten in the first round, eventually will be gotten because there's going to be more newtowns. we're so far extended on access to weapons of mass destruction that there are going to be other incidention. >> we were looking in the wrong place, right? >> right. >> who would -- you're right. they are here. you know? and when a disturbed individual can take two magazines, 30-round magazines, tape them together so he literally -- all he had to do was turn it around and get another 30 shots off and have multiples of those as you walk into a school, that's who we are right now and america's growing sick of it. and if we start to forget what happened in new

. >> new york mayor michael bloomberg has been pushing for stricter gun laws for years. i spoke to him earlier. first of all, your impressions of the president's proposals on gun control. are you happy with them? >> you're never going to have everything you want. but i thought it was comprehensive. it outlined he can do by executive order and it outlined things he has got to with help from the vice president and help from lots of other people, convince congress to do. two kinds of problems and he address both of them. >> you said earlier today, there are some things he's not going to get legislation on. he's not going to be able to get through. >> i think some things are tougher than others. there's a general consensus from the country that background checks before you buy a gun should apply to everyone. right now, it applies only to gun shows. i'm sorry, to gun dealers. >> licensed dealers. >> right, but most people would be in favor, and that's easier for congress to get done. you have to explain it to them, they have got to hear from their constituents, and i think they will do that
% of americans favor stricter gun laws. and the same poll shows the national rifle association with a higher approval than hollywood. >> the nra's had some good days and bad days in this. and actually that depends on how you look at it. even when the nra has a bad day. and the media is calling them too aggressive. that's a good day for the nra, that usually ends up working in their favor in terms of membership. >> joining me now is los angeles mayor antonio villaraigosa. it's great to have you with me this morning. and the president is going to have two very big opportunities to sell the country on his proposals about gun violence. first the inaugural address on monday and the state of the union address. as we mentioned, he is turning obama for america into this organization for action and vice president joe biden made this promise to you and your colleagues at the mayor's conference yesterday. i want to show everybody. take a listen. >> we're going to take this fight to the halls of congress. we're going to take it beyond that. we're going to take it to the american people. we're going to g
already signed a trillion dollars of deficit reduction into law and committed to more spending cuts but we can't just cut our way to prosperity. we have toasting to invest in things like -- we have to continue to invest in things like education and energy. he put reducing the deficit in a balanced way to promote jobs for middle class families and that is going to be his guiding principle through the negotiations. >> i want to ask you quickly about the republican idea. would you support it but with the caveat they are telling the senate you haven't passed a budget in more than three years and you need to do that so we have a baseline for negotiations. >> well, let's revisit what the debt limit actually is. this is about congress paying the bills for what it has already racked up. the white house has made clear that the president will take a look at the proposal. they said it is encouraging that the republicans were moving away from some of their demands but the preferenc prefs still a long-term agreement and the president is going to use the negotiations to headache sure that we do reduce t
.c. is the first law of nature and these members of congress that represent states that have folks that are against gun control. listen, american people are more astute when it comes to the second amendment and our rights to bear arms. should something be done about violence? yes. but by taking our guns away, and i'm one of the ones that believes in the second amendment that is not the answer. so harry reid, if you recall, was endorsed by the nra, harry reid voted against the assault ban in 2004 and got a b grade from the nra. so if i were giving the democrats any type of advice, they should not follow the president's liberal agenda on gun control. jon: -pt president doesn't have to run for office again. he's won re-election. he has four years to get done what he wants to do. we heard in the inaugural address that he seems to have moved -- well he seems to be pushing some more liberal positions than he espoused earlier. you have senators like tim johnson of south dakota. mark udall of colorado, maryland drew of lashes all of the democratic senators, all of them from states that do not favor increas
. >> and similarly, you've got this very tough new new york state anti-gun or gun control law that andrew cuomo pushed through and signed. is that going to be more of a solution to your problems in new york city and in urban areas, or does that still not go far enough because of the secondary markets and the fact that the guns are coming right across the border from neighboring states? >> i think it's going to be a help, but, again, as i say, 90% of our guns come from out of state. that's why we need a national approach. we need a federal plan. otherwise, we're still going to be playing with guns coming from all over. they come over the iron pipeline. 95, highway 95, coming up from southern states. these are guns that are landing on our doorstep, and they're killing new yorkers. now, last year as you showed me your graphic, we had the lowest mof mrdz we had in new york in at least 50 years, and we're proud of that, but there's still far too many of them. >> and, of course, your fellow cities, i mean, chicago has been plagued with homicides. homicides involving children, young people. this is an
. on wednesday the president proposed a package of gun law reforms in response to the massacre in newtown last month. the package is by all accounts the most sweeping attempt to curb gun violence at the national level since 1994. the president took a number of executive actions immediately but the most contentious members including a proposed limit on ammunition magazines, stronger background checks and reinstatement of assault weapons ban will be left for congress to decide. >> these are some of executive actions i am announcing today. as important as these steps are they are in no way a substitute for action from members of congress. to make a real and lasting difference, congress, too, must act. and congress must act soon. >> all right. we have heard a lot about the political strength of the nra. there was a lot of discussion about whether the president would follow up the speech, the moving speech at the memorial with some kind of executive and legislative component and so i guess my first question to you is how -- what were you anticipating you would see from the president? was this more
people did that and, you know, he have vaded the law. >> will only manufacturers be banned from making them or will the distribution and ownership also be banned? then there's this. >> require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. >> it may be politically doable but problematic from a policy standpoint. right now about two dozen states don't contribute to the federal background check program on a regular basis and expanding to all private sales is a huge challenge, even if the government sets up an online application. >> to try and regulate that portion over the internet could be extremely difficult and complicated at best. >> another can of worms is preventing the mentally ill from buying guns. right now a court or a judge has to rule that a person is mentally defective before it's reported to the background check system. the question is, whether a lot of people with serious issues who shouldn't qualify are still able to get guns. >> many people do not go through the core process for any type of process for seeking mental health treatment or resources. now you a
the differences between the two bills and congress can pass a comprehensive bill for me to sign into law. america needs to conduct this debate on immigration on reason, and a respectful tone. all this need to keep some things in mind. we cannot build united country by inciting people to anger, or exploiting the issue of immigration for political gain. real lives will be affected by our debates and decisions. every human being has dignity and value, no matter what their citizenship papers say. host: you hear what the president said six years ago. a couple of campaigns have been held since then. most noticeably what mitt romney did and did not get in 2012. guest: there is a sense that the election returns have consequences. it is transparently in the self interest of republicans, who increased their share of the vote among the fastest growing block of american voters, latino voters. it is certainly much more favorable to immigration reform than when he made that speech six years ago. host: that is one of the issues the president will be facing. "the washington post" has this piece. one sentence i w
in washington very little can get accomplished right now. our poll shows 56% favor tighter gun control laws, 52% want illegal immigrants who hold jobs to apply for legal status. so, liz, what are his second term priorities going to be? what are we going to hear from him? >> well, look, i think he's already signaled what they're going to be. he's made it very clear that big immigration package is going to be put together. he feels a need to address gun control in the wake of newtown. and, you know, he's going to have to face the tax issue, as well. it's not just raising the debt ceiling that he's going to have to deal with. but he's going to have to negotiate with the republicans and perhaps try to change the tax code. all of these things are things he's already signaled he wants to do. what's fascinating is that this is a president who wanted to be a domestic president in the last -- in his first term and he was saddled with an economic situation and two wars to deal with. now is a shot to be that domestic president and make some really big change. but he's going to have to work with republican
connecticut. it has one of the toughest gun laws in the country. i'd like his opinion. and instead the first thing you hear out of him are thinks thoughts on this ad. i just think it really kind of cheapened the debate and cheapened his influence. he had a real opportunity there and he squandered it. >> yeah. it's not the first thing he said about the thing. i mean, he was here with us. you know, he went after gun control. >> it was what the media seized on because here you have a republican going after the nra. >> that's us. that's not christie. >> sure, but he's aware of that. he's aware of what he says and how it's going to be taken. he knew what he was doing when he came out so strongly against that ad. and i think it really muted whatever other sentiments, whether i agree with them or not, about gun control. >> what do you disagree with him on? >> oh, well, you know, as a gun rights advocate, i disagree that banning wide categories of guns is either effective -- >> but not the ad. do you find that ad reprehensible? >> oh, reprehensible? no. i think they were making a point. i don't thin
? >> yeah. well, whistle-blower lawsuits by law are typically sealed, brooke, for at least 60 days, a minimum of 60 days, and they usually remain sealed during the investigation. and that's for good reason. it protects the investigation and, of course, it protects the whistle-blower. it is very difficult as you would imagine in many circumstances for the whistle-blower to come forward. i will say this, the daily news has released what they purport to be the lawsuit. it is about 33 pages, i have seen a copy. i'm not comfortable sharing it with our audience, because, again, we don't know the posture of the investigation. and typically the cases are at stake. what is reportedly at stake is the proceeds basically of this sponsorship, between the u.s. postal service and this team. the u.s. postal service invested about $30 million in sponsorship money. these false claim acts cases are basically seeking trouble damages. you're talking really three times, about $30 million. and floyd landis in particular could gain about 25% of any recovery. now, the justice department with its formidable
is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. >> reporter: at the luncheon which followed a more bipartisan tone. speaker of the house john boehner presented the president with a gift and good wish. >> in the spirit of harmony i'm proud to present the flag that flew over this battalion of democracy today to president barack obama and vice president joe biden, and to you gentlemen i say, congratulations, and godspeed. >> reporter: the most poignant picture of the day was this the president going inside from the west front of the capitol, pausing and turning for one last look down the vast expanse of the national mall. another thing he thought he might not see, some daylight on the debt limit fight. republicans said monday they would vote tomorrow to raise the debt limit for three months that delays at least for a while another showdown on the debt which could result in closing down the government. and in just three weeks we get the second act of the president's inaugural address, his state of the union speech. there he
new laws in states like wisconsin and indiana and the expansion of companies in nonunion states. >> "the seattle times," a battery like the one in boeing 787 dreamliner exploded in a lab in 2006. setting off a volatile fire that destroyed the building in which it was housed. the u.s. and european fleets of dreamliners have been temporarily grounded until technical issues are resolved including problems with lithium batteries that have caught fire. >> i think that's probably a good idea. >> going to be a long time before mika gets on a 787. >> let's look at "politico." joining us with a look at the "playbook," executive editor jim vandehei. good morning. >> good morning. a special treat for you today. in solidarity with my dear friend beyonce, i'm going to lip-sync my analysis. >> mika did that the other day. >> i tried. it didn't work so well. i still don't get it, willie. >> were you offended that she perhaps lip-synced? >> she lip-synced. >> i know, but what do you not get? it's not yo-yo ma four years ago. >> i have a problem with all of it. >> do you really? >> it's not a wo
his law is good, then he should go through congress. not just issue it. he's not a king. even using children reminds me of saddam hussein when he uses kids. >> jennifer: the question that comes out of all of this is whether the president should fight for rational policy that he knows will not pass an irrational house of representatives. and the answer to that question is really in a painting by grace mcdonald a sick-year-old sandy hook victim whose dad gave the president a piece of her art work. >> obama: when i look at that painting i think about grace. i think about the life that she lived, the house that layed ahead of her and most of you willall ithink about protecting the most vulnerable among us we must act now. >> jennifer: for grace this fight is worth waging. for her this fight may be worth losing in the short term any way. while the president may might be able to squeak out a small ugly bill riddled with hoop holes and signifying nothing perhaps this instance it's better to stand strong against assault rifles even when you know you're not going to get the votes in congress
